Goals in the opening 28 minutes from Blair Malcolm and Robbie Buchanan set us on our way to a second successive win at Ochilview Park.

We started the match strongly and with five minutes gone McGinn saved low to his left to deny Sheerin.

Sheerin then saw a shot hit the post before we eventually took the lead with 22 minutes gone when Blair MALCOLM slotted home from close range after McGinn had knocked a Buchanan shot from a Swann cross onto the post.

Six minutes later we doubled our advantage when Robbie BUCHANAN dispossessed Donaldson before firing a shot into the top corner of the net.

Just after the break McGurn had to be at his best to save a McMenamin shot and just short of the hour Malcolm came close to getting his second goal of the night but headed just wide.

Mullen then saw a free kick at the edge of the box go just off target while with 70 minutes gone Malcolm saw a shot go wide.

However two minutes later the Warriors pulled a goal back when Jamie LONGWORTH headed home from a Cook cross.

Minutes later Paton almost grabbed an equaliser but his shot came off the upright while Brad Smith came close at the other end with nine minutes to go.

The closing stages saw some stout defending as both Cook and Longworth were denied while into stoppage time McGurn saved from Mick Dunlop to ensure all three points.
